Do life changes always have to be so difficult?
Small towns come with their own set of rules and a lack of privacy is the least of the worries that Deborah is dealing with. As she tries to release the past and move forward she, stumbles over guilt and too many memories from the life she had preventing her from building the life new now wants. The new bookstore she opens helps and finding Asa working for her exciting. He does not say much but there is a world of experiences he has also lived that she wants him to share. Every day they grow closer and discovering all his secrets is a healing balm for both of their hearts as they allow themselves to move toward a future.
Reading about two tattered souls finding each other and moving on with their lives is romance at its finest. This is a story of two people dealing with real life issues and making the difficult adult decisions everyone has to accomplish. My only question about this book is did Crystal get a dog or not?

This book started out slow. I put it down than pick it back up weeks later. It turn out not to be a bad read, however I believe the author could dealt with a little less details and got the same effect.

Quaint Deborah Robinson is a young widow after her husband drow
Deborah Robinson is a young widow after her husband drowns. Wanting a fresh new start, she and her children move from Charleston, South Carolina, to her family home on Cavanaugh Island. There she meets widower Asa Monroe. He recently lost his wife and son in a car accident. Also looking for a new start has landed him in Sanctuary Cove on Cavanaugh Island. Will the two find a second chance at love?
Anyone that has read books of the romance genre knows exactly what they are going to get. Boy meets girl, yada, yada, yada, boy and girl live happily ever after. Predictable, I know, right? What separates one book from the next is the yada, yada, yada. Though predictable, that yada, yada, yada can still be an enjoyable experience. I can’t say I found that to be the case with Rochelle Alers’ “Sanctuary Cove.” While by no means a bad read, it was just okay. The premise was decent, two widows finding love again after the pain, but the foundation was not a strong one for me as I couldn’t get past how quickly the main female character was willing to consider another relationship. She had been married in what was described as a pretty good marriage for almost 20 years and four weeks after burying her best friend and lover, she’s looking for love. That nagged me throughout the entire novel and affected my overall feel for the novel. Add to that the book being slow at times and I didn’t find myself in love with this read.
I’ve read several Rochelle Alers novels; this just wasn’t one of my favorites. With Cavanaugh Island and the community she created in Sanctuary Cove, the possibilities with subsequent novels is great.
